Today’s new recipe is Gluten Free Rocky Road! It’s such a fun and easy slice to make and perfect for party season!!
I created more of a traditional rocky road slice using marshmallows, peanuts and coconut, but you can adapt this quick and easy recipe to include any ingredients. I’ve seen some recipes with pistachios, turkish delight or even white chocolate. Just remember to double check the confectionery you plan to use is gluten free if you plan to make a GF version.
Thanks for stopping by,
This Gluten Free Chocolate Honeycomb is so tasty and easy to make! There is always the option to buy store bought honeycomb, but there is something so satisfying about making your own homemade chocolates. I feel like you enjoy them just little bit more (although what’s not to love with chocolate?!). You can also make the honeycomb alone to use in other cakes and baked goods, like the GF Nutella Cheesecake recipe I shared from my birthday. Yum!
It’s truly so easy to make and a lovely gift to include for Birthday or Christmas presents. Speaking of Christmas, I plan on sharing a handful of new recipes with you all in the final weeks leading up to the big day. I have been a little preoccupied lately with social events, sicknesses and starting a new role at work, so I haven’t had much time to bake. I promise to fix it all in the weeks ahead! After all, Christmas is one of my favourite times of year.
If you have any great Gluten Free Christmas recipes I’d love to hear from you! You can contact me on any of my social media accounts (I have Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram) or email me.
Have a great week!
Saturday was my daughter Lyla’s second birthday and to celebrate I created a special Bunny cake using a Gluten Free Chocolate Cake recipe.
Now I wanted to tell you Lyla doesn’t have any diet restrictions, but there were three people (including me) who required a Gluten Free Diet. So with that in mind, I chose to create a Gluten Free version of Yotam Ottolenghi’s Chocolate Cake recipe reported as the Worlds Best Chocolate Cake. I also used a Chocolate Buttercream recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction’s for the filling between the 2½ layers of chocolate cake and topped it off with fondant. The end result was this rather tall cake that required over 50cm of fondant and the purchase of an extra large rolling pin amongst other equipment. I created all the features of the bunny by hand too without any stencils!
I’m super proud of how the Bunny cake turned out having only decorated a cake using fondant once before, for Lyla’s epic first birthday party. Given how delicious the chocolate cake was and the fact it didn’t require a stand mixer or more than 2 bowls, I thought it was my responsibility to share the cake recipe with you all!

Sunday I celebrated my birthday with my two loves and this incredible Gluten Free Nutella Cheesecake! We ate cake at a park in the most glorious sunshine and Lyla sang the “hooray” part of the happy birthday song.
The cheesecake has a smooth creamy texture, with a gluten free oreo style biscuit base, nutella filling and ganache. I’m salivating just thinking about it. Lucky for me my husband made it. Jesse used Simply Wise Gluten Free Choc’o Biscuits (think Gluten Free Oreo’s) for the biscuit base that’s we picked up from the Gluten Free Food Show in Melbourne. He also made homemade honeycomb for decoration on the top of the cheesecake. I’ll be sure to link to the honeycomb recipe soon.
If you like nutella though you might also like these Gluten Free Nutella Brownies!

I made this Gluten Free Black Forest Layer Cake for my husbands birthday last Tuesday! It was the first time I’ve made and tasted a Black forest cake before and I have to say I absolutely loved it. Oh and so did the birthday boy!!
The chocolate cakes were filled with white chocolate ganache and cherry jam and a dark chocolate icing to top finish off the cake. I realised I didn’t make quite enough ganache or cherry jam, so I made sure to double the quantities in the recipe below so you don’t run out!
I know this isn’t one of my quickest or simplest recipes, so I will forgive you if you don’t go out and make it this weekend. I’d seriously consider it for your next birthday celebration though, it was so divine. You might also want to read a little bit about why birthdays are so important in my family. I shared it on my blog last year with a recipe for Gluten Free Chocolate and Salted Caramel Layer Cake. Just excuse the fact the cake wasn’t very even shaped or flat.
Anyway, I must say thanks to Delicious magazine for the original recipe. I adapted it to be gluten free with a few less steps. Thanks for stopping by!
